Had been told that this course was okay by friends but have to say it was more interesting, in better condition, had better facilities and was much better value for money than the Emirates. Play it before it shuts in early 2017! Great track !

I like Al Badia Gold Club and l used to enjoy my weekends there either playing golf or having a fantastic meal in the restaurant. I believe that the restaurants needs to add more attractive items to the menu instead of this redundancy for a long time.

Needs a new lease of life, the F/B used to be world class The course was always in excellent condition whilst the greens have always been on slower side depending on the time of year. No more challenge tour but still holds a mena event With a concession on the green fee with a coat of lokking at
